Susan Robinson-Derus

Ceremonies of beauty and meaning to mark important times in life.

I create and conduct funerals, memorials, weddings, blessings and naming ceremonies to honour life and death to mark important times in life.

I want to be the best I can, always open minded, open hearted and non-judgemental.


I have warmth, wit, intelligence, care and compassion to listen and write a narrative that captures the very essence of a life story, character and voice to touch hearts, minds and souls.

As a skilled communicator, writer and public speaker I draw on a world of experience embracing diverse cultures, rituals, beliefs and values to make a memorable and satisfying ceremony that commemorates and honours life’s milestones.

My involvement with each family, colleague, life story and ceremony are privileges I respect.

I will tread lightly and sensitively to help guide you and deliver the ceremony true to what you want. 

That is my commitment to you.

I am a member of the Celebrants Association of New Zealand (CANZ) and a registered Marriage Celebrant and work across Auckland and beyond by arrangement.
